Default Door Threshold Ideas

I'm starting to look at the door threshold and wondering what the best way to finish this area is. When the door is opened, the canopy top has a flane from the door threahold sticking up to meet the bottom of the door. It isn't very thick and then quickly drops down to the horizontal aluminum threshold piece that canopy is attached to. Seems it would make for better cosmetics and a place to step if the threshold was filled in and leveled with the the flange. I know the factory plane has a cheap looking piece of wood cut to fill the space.

What are other people doing? I'm considering having my machinest mill me a hallowed out piece of aluminum that fills the space and doesn't weigh much.
